A local nonprofit is passing out crystal meth pipes to the homeless population of Skid Row in downtown Los Angeles.
According to eyewitnesses, Homeless Healthcare Los Angeles workers drive around Skid Row in a golf cart, distributing these drug paraphernalia to those in need.
This practice has sparked outrage from many members of the community, who see this as a dangerous and irresponsible approach to helping those struggling with addiction.
One resident, Tony Anthony, was shocked when he witnessed workers passing out these pipes.
“They had boxes of it passing it out, and I’m like, this is a damn shame… they shouldn’t be doing this,” he said.
I agree with you about the needle giveaways, that being said it was the precedent which gave us this brilliant idea.
I love the old saying, if you let some people slide, pretty soon they think they can ice skate!
I try to occupy that reasonable place between pursuit of happiness & public safety.
All harm no prevention is on the money!!!!!
